The Course

The significance of national boundaries is diminishing and a comprehensive knowledge of the law governing international trade and commercial relationships is of the utmost importance. This programme provides you with the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge of the law and regulations which govern corporate and commercial activities across national borders.

Allowing you the opportunity to reflect on the private and public dimensions of the legal rules necessary to govern the world economy, this programme aims to prepare you to respond to the changing and dynamic nature of legal relations between corporations, individuals and states.

A substantial dissertation is required as part of your study, and this is designed to enable you to enhance your research skills as you undertake a detailed investigation in an area of your choice.

How You Study

The LLM gives students the chance to reflect the private, corporate and the public dimensions of the legal rules necessary to govern the world economy with modules on international business law (including both international trade and international sale of goods), private international law, and public rules on the EU internal market and the World Trade Organisation, amongst others.

  • Contact and Independent Study

The programme is delivered by two-hour seminars, once per week, in each module. Extensive preparation is required for each seminar, and wide reading is expected.

The postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend two-three hours in independent study.

How You Are Assessed

All modules are assessed by written assignments. There is also a requirement to write a substantial dissertation. There are no examinations, written or oral.

  • Assessment Feedback

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.
